Improve Your Results by Being Different

Its no secret that very few people who start a business ever “make it”.

When I say “make it” -I mean any level of success.

This can be different for everyone.

Somebody might want just enough for their bills…

Another person may want to earn $5,000 a month while some may want to earn $5,000 a week.

And you can’t forget those who want to earn at least $1,000,000 a year.

Whatever your goals are -this is what I mean by “making it”.

So few people ever “make it”.

But those who do succeed in their business do things just a little bit different.

Have you ever noticed that?

The people that are in the top 5% of any company -they stand out from the crowd.

Today I am going to share with you 3 things that will help you be different, stand out from everybody else, get higher conversions, and ultimately put more money in your pocket.

And these 3 things can be used with any type of business opportunity.

So even if you decide to promote something new, you can still use these 3 things to help you make more money.

Let’s get started.

Use Your Own Landing Pages

Some people call them squeeze pages or lead capture pages -they are the same thing.

Yes. The company you are with will give you some nice landing pages, which is great.

But everyone else in the company is using the exact same page.

When you have your own landing pages, you can use the same traffic sources as everyone else in the company -you can even target the exact same people –and you will get higher conversions.

…because people won’t be clear on what you are selling, assuming you don’t add the company logo or name to your landing page.

With the tools we got today, it is very easy to create a landing page.

And if you don’t want to do it yourself, you can simply pay someone to create one for you.

This leads to the next thing…

Build a List

Remember, you want to do things that most people aren’t willing to do.

And one of those things is: build an email list.

When you build a list, you aren’t just building a list. You are building an asset.

  • That is your audience…
  • Your prospects…
  • Your leads…
  • Your traffic…
  • Your efforts…

Forget about standing out and being different for just a second.

When you send traffic straight to the company site… all your efforts, your traffic, and your leads are going to someone else.

But this is what most people do.

They build a little bit of momentum -they get traffic, start generating leads, and maybe make a few sales.

Then something happens…

They decide to join a different opportunity for whatever reason.

…and they’re back to square one: no traffic, no leads, no list, no prospects… starting from ZERO.

All the hard work went to creating someone else’s list.

Then they start the same cycle in the new company…

Send traffic, generate some leads, get a sale or two, build some momentum, then off to the next thing.

I am all too familiar with this.

I used to do this A LOT in the beginning.

It wasn’t until I started building a list with my own custom landing pages, that my income started to grow.

When you start promoting something different that nobody has ever seen before, people will begin to optin to your list almost immediately.

…because you are standing out and being different.

But what happens once they opt in to your list?

That’s the next thing…

Provide Value

Most people never bother to build a list -and those that do, very few of them ever provide value to their prospects.

The majority of marketers who have a list, all they do is pitch.

Every email you get from them is nothing but a sales pitch for their “latest and greatest” offer.

It’s all about:

  • a new shiny object,
  • “push-button” software,
  • a “business in a box” solution,
  • “make money even if you don’t want to”,
  • “get all these bonuses” when you buy,
  • “ninja tactics”,
  • a “super-secret underground traffic source”,
  • the “ultimate” method,
  • make money “on complete autopilot”,
  • “the next multi-billion dollar industry” (my favorite)

…and a whole bunch of other nonsense and hype.

You know what most marketers do?

They treat their list like a booty call.

They (most marketers) reach out only when they want to make a quick buck.

Fortunately for us, this is a good thing.

Instead, reach out to your list regularly –helping them out as you go.

You must genuinely care about helping other people.

Provide valuable content in your emails on a regular basis.

This could mean daily, every other day, or even a few times a week -but make sure you keep in touch.

Otherwise, most people will forget all about you and when you finally reach out they will most likely hit that “spam” button; they won’t know who you are.

This happens to the typical marketer.

Don’t be a typical marketer.

…and when you think about it, it’s not really that hard to stand out and do things a little different.

All you gotta do is:

  • Use your own landing pages,
  • Build a list,
  • and provide valuable content to your list.

So be different.

Stand out.

Be above average.

…and you will create an above average income.

Gain Credibility as a Complete Newbie

If you are fairly new to the world of business opportunities, then you are probably asking yourself the following question:

“How do I get people to join my business opportunity as a newbie with no experience?”

The answer to that question is simple: gain some credibility.

First you need to ask yourself the following:

“Why would someone join my business opportunity?”

Here are some typical answers:

“Because they can make more money”
“Because my product is the greatest thing”
“Because all the features my product/service has”
“Because we have all the tools you need”
“Because we are in ‘pre-launch'”
“Because of our training”

All these answers are great but there’s one small problem…

Everyone in your company is offering the same thing!

This means that your prospects can essentially join under anyone else in the company -and all those “reasons to join” will be the same as they are with you.

You need to offer something different and stand out.

A great way to do this is by sharing your success with your prospects.

…and you generate success by taking action.

There is absolutely no way around this.

You go out there, generate some type of results -whether its getting traffic, generating leads, or making a sale.

Then you use that success to share with others.

All of a sudden, you are not “just like everyone else in your company”.

All of a sudden, you become a leader.

There are a few more things to become a great leader in your business opportunity but for now, let’s just work with sharing your successes…

If you generated one lead today with one ad -share that with your prospects.

You can use that in your ads.

Did you make your first sale? -share that with your prospects.

Don’t have prospects?

Now may be a good idea to start building an email list.

…but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves -you need to first go out there and get some sort of results.

Once you get that first positive result you will be ahead of 90% of everyone else and you will have more to offer your leads and prospects.

…and you get that first positive result by generating some traffic to your business opportunity.
